WPPC has linked in with neighbours Westminster Psychotherapy Associates to expand our holistic approach to all our clients’ needs.

Here’s their guest blog:

Be it blushing, “butterflies in the stomach” and the “sickening” impact of violence or gastric ulcers, psoriasis and anorexia, the associations between body and mind are familiar to us all. And yet we habitually look after the physical and emotional as if they have nothing to do with each other.

To integrate our approach towards a Healthy Body and Healthy Mind, Westminster Therapy Associates is working alongside our neighbours at The Westminster Physiotherapy and Pilates Centre to provide a holistic service. Although our clients may come to see us to have help with depression, anxiety or relationship problems – as well as for numerous other issues –  they frequently speak of back problems, difficulty breathing, problematic relationship with foods and a myriad of other physical displays of their emotional worries. Sleep can be disturbed by muscular tension or nightmares but muscle stress and anxiety can also be induced by restless nights. The alliance between our two organisations ensures that the root cause of the problem is identified and addressed.

Although more and more GPs are recognising that physical ailments are “stress related”, they are seriously limited in what they can offer to help depending predominantly on pharmacological solutions or long waiting lists for a restricted offering of talking therapies. In recognition that one or two sizes cannot fit all, Westminster Therapy Associates offers psychotherapy and counselling that is tailored to the needs of each client. Our therapists each have a specialised area of interest and expertise but all of our work fundamentally depends on the unique individual relationship created between therapist and client. Our website www.westminstertherapyassociates.co.uk can tell you more about our services.
